Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

The Trevorrow script as leaked didn't strike me as exciting. Doesn't offer any interesting story beats that I can see, just a fairly straight forward conclusion. It does make sense to have ghost Luke confront Kylo though, something Luke said he would do in TLJ, but that plot point wasn't picked up by Abrams (another example of a lack of consistency and planning across these films).

I am surprised they didn't consider keeping Luke alive after Carrie Fisher died. It would have been an obvious choice to have him take on whatever had been planned for Leia in Episode 9.

Yes, that seemed to be what was being thrown about in the media. Trevorrow wanted Luke to live at the end of 8 because of carries passing. And that Kennedy and crew said no. That's the main things that came up in the rumor mill, but Im sure there was other things as well.
Interesting. Given that Disney took such a different path with 9 compared to the original script, I agree it must have been more than that. They could've just had Abrams and the other guy tweak Trevorrow's script while still keeping the basic story and plans. It was more consistent with the other films. Although they fired Trevorrow before TLJ was released so I wonder if they originally planned to do just that. But then once the backlash hit they decided to do a major course correction.

If this is true...it is indisputably an agenda and that is a fireable offense.

1. Luke Skywalker is the star of star wars
2. Princess Leia is not as important.
3. Deal with it, “snowflake” 🤪

Go back and check the tape...I was never a supporter of the feminist or “woke” theories...

But now that it’s finally...mercifully over (this 4 years are every bit as painful as the prequels)...it’s hard to not come to the conclusion that they tried to “correct” something from 1980 that was in no way wrong in the first place. The reflection of a PC world gone mad...
And that’s why this era has no gravitas and will be considered more and more of a failure as time goes on.

Disney is complicit as well...believing idealism over the emotion of the originals. They never got it.

I think it’s pretty obvious treverrow looked at 8, disagreed with it, and Kennedy fired him for manboy...

They just pooched the story from the start. Wasting 2 hours for a reboot put it behind the 8 ball from the start.

Though in the fallout I’ve seen some writers outright say Gareth Edwards was FIRED...not “helped” in editing as was originally spun.

That means Kennedy’s record is 3 of 5 Directors fired, steep drop in attendance, a flop and Iger pulling the plug on movies in totality...

Anyone want to make the case that she shouldn’t be fired again? Bill parcels time

Not officially confirmed but expected Digital on March 31 and disc on April 14.
Hmmm. That seems a bit late to me. If they follow the same schedule as The last jedi the digital release should be around March 13th. Maybe a bit earlier this time on the 10th or 11th of March. Frozen 2 released November 28th and just released this past Tuesday.
